Shootaround Report: Pau Gasol Out Tonight Against The Kings

One day after the 124-112 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Lakers will look to bounce back with a victory on the road against the division rival Sacramento Kings.

The Lakers have been successful against the Kings, winning all three previous meetings despite allowing 102.7 points per game to Sacramento. The last time the Lakers matched up against their division rivals, Sacramento was without DeMarcus Cousins due to a suspension and Jordan Farmar recorded a career-high of 30 points. Farmar was able to make 80 percent of his shots from behind the arc in order to help the team set a franchise record of 19 three-point field goals made. The Lakers would eventually secure a 126-122 victory.

Lakers center Pau Gasol will not play tonight due to a severe recurrence of vertigo in Sacramento. Also, Chris Kaman will be a game-time decision because of a right calf-strain.

With the Lakers having only eight games left this season to showcase their young talent, they are now possibly in the range of hitting their 50th loss of the season, a record that hasn’t happened since the 1974-75 season when they had 30 wins and 49 losses.

Much of the news surrounding the Lakers management has been revolved around Mike D’Antoni’s future with the franchise. The Lakers front office is rumored to be holding on to Mike D’Antoni for next season as the head coach. Being repeatedly criticized for his decisions from the media and players on the roster, coach D’Antoni still has one guaranteed year left in his contract with a team option for a fourth year.
